Hari Sauri Prabhu said:

I just want to personally thank you and all the other devotees
involved in staging Srila Prabhupada’s Vyasapuja for making such a
wonderful two days of offerings. I had so many devotees come to me to say
thanks. Some of them said it was the best Vyasapuja they have ever been
too. This is all due to your sincerity and determination to properly
glorify His Divine Grace.
Of course, things can always be improved (don’t get puffed up!) but
we made a good start which I hope can be expanded upon each year. I am
sure Srila Prabhupada was very happy with all the presentations, the
Vyasapuja book (which I thought was exceptionally well done), the first
class prasadam, and the program today with invited guests from the local
area.
Once again, my humble thanks for making it a memorable couple of days.

Your humble servant, Hari-sauri dasa

Krsna’s Pastimes with the Demon Kamsa

Kamsa Summons Demons, Greets a Mendicant, 17th c.

Lila pastimes with the transcendental demons.

“Kamsa was an enemy of Krsna’s. From the very beginning of Krsna’s birth, he planned in so many ways to kill Him, and because he was always unsuccessful, he was always thinking of Krsna. Thus while working, while eating and while sleeping, he was always Krsna conscious in every respect, but that Krsna consciousness was not favorable, and therefore in spite of his always thinking of Krsna twenty-four hours a day, he was considered a demon, and Krsna at last killed him.

Of course anyone who is killed by Krsna attains salvation immediately, but that is not the aim of the pure devotee. The pure devotee does not even want salvation. He does not want to be transferred even to the highest planet, Goloka Vrndavana. His only objective is to serve Krsna wherever he may be.

Bhagavad-Gita 11:55

“Kamsa was made aware of his previous birth by the grace of Narada. He learned that in his previous birth he was a demon of the name Kalanemi and that he was killed by Visnu. Having taken his birth in the Bhoja family, he decided to become the deadly enemy of the Yadu dynasty; Krsna was going to take birth in that family, and Kamsa was very much afraid that he would be killed by Krsna, just as he was killed in his last birth.

He first of all imprisoned his father Ugrasena because he was the chief king among the Yadu, Bhoja, and Andhaka dynasties, and he also occupied the kingdom of Surasena, Vasudeva’s father. He declared himself the king of all such places.
